I've had stretch marks for 10 years having lost and gained weight over that period of time, always used bio-oil and it has NEVER worked. Maybe because it's kind of impossible to expect an oil to miraculously work and smooth out stretch marks? I think massage is probably the beneficial part and the rest is a bit of a placebo, personally.
Gimmicky and fairly unremarkable, there are cheaper and better shampoos out there and this eventually caused a bit of build up for me. Take it or leave it!
LOVE the nyx shadows... great pigment, great colour selection and amazing price. Personally I don't feel they last super long as I have oily lids (even when I put a primer on they don't last that long) but for the price you pay and the color payoff, I'm pretty happy with the shadows. Love this brand, wish it was more readily available via retail in Australia though!
My favourite fragrance! It's so fresh and clean and subtle that I totally love wearing it and find it doesn't irritate me at all (I have some minor allergies to some perfumes). A great perfume for day to day, the only downside is that it doesn't last a super long time, but I'm sure if you put a bit of it into a portable perfume spritzer, it would be easy to touch up throughout the day.
Oh, I LOVE this fragrance! My housemate wore it once and I was like 'what are you WEARING, IT'S AMAZING!' and she let me know. I ordered it online because I couldn't find it anywhere in retail, so I got it slightly discounted, but it's a very expensive, lush perfume. Unfortunately, I am a little allergic to it so I can't wear much or often, otherwise I would. It's truly divine and luxe!
Great blushes! Love the amount of pigment, the texture is nice and soft and it is soooo affordable! I can see why some people complain that it's 'too' pigmented because less is definitely more with these blushes, but if you're careful, you can build it up slowly and get the desired amount of colour on your cheeks. I find these don't have *as* much staying power as the bourjois powder blushes I've tried, but they're still a wonderful product, especially considering the price :)
I really like the creamy texture of this tinted lip balm and the colours (and the amount of pigment) in it, however, I'm not a fan of the 'mintyness' despite the fact I love mint normally, and I feel like it's a little greasy. The packaging is really good and if it weren't for the awful taste and slight greasy feeling, it would have gotten a higher rating from me.

Quite lovely, pretty moisturizing and creamy and not waxy/greasy at all. Does its job!
ORIGINAL POST: Greasy, not long lasting, not moisturizing at all and kinda pricey for what you get! Didn't like this at all. EDIT: I still don't like this as a balm for my lips, however, I have found a wonderful way to use it as my cucticle cream... it works really well as a lovely wax based cuticule creat and it really softens the cuticles down nice, smells incredibly beautiful and works a treat. So don't throw away your bottles of maybelinne baby lips if you were not a fan like me - recycle, and use them as your cuticle creams instead!!! :))
Very pigmented, stayed on all day, lovely range of palettes and a decent applicator! Very lovely eyeshadows!
Gorgeous, natural looking blush, never makes me break out and has a beautiful pigment and texture. The only thing is the scratchy brush - although I only tried it once but never used it after that because it was such bad quality but you can just use your fingers to pat it on if you want, or a blush brush or kabuki brush. Great product, great value and great colours!
My hair can get SUPER oily and gross and I am unfortunately one of those people who cannot overwash their hair (like, every second day is the limit to washing my hair) otherwise it gets worse... so days that I'm on the run, I can use this on my dark hair without it going white/grey.
I fell in love with this colour immediately when I saw it in the isle of target and never looked back. It's a gorgeous colour and applies quite smoothly and opaquely. It did chip after a couple of days but I wasn't wearing a base coat or a top coat and it still looked pretty amazing (the chipping was fairly minor). If all the top speed nail enamels are like this, then I will be buying more for sure... I usually buy OPI polishes but they're often so expensive, so I think revlon's polishes are a great equivalent.
Pretty lovely mascara, really soft to put on and it never clumps for me. I wish it were longer lasting on my oily eyelids but it always smudges within 2 hours unless I put some clear mascara over the top of it, but even then it will only last around 4 hours. If it had better staying power, it would be my favourite mascara ever!
Liquid -Chanel - Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Fluid Makeup SPF 15

Pretty good foundation considering I tend to break out a lot! It is meant to be a 'matte' foundation but I found it more of a 'matte luminous' finish rather than true matte, which meant it looked very natural even under a bit of powder. I wouldn't say it lasts all day without touchups if you have very oily skin like me, but if you're more on the combination to slightly oily and you want a natural finish AND you're prepared to shell out a lot of money on good foundation, then this is a pretty good pick. I always feel very luxurious and beautiful when I wear this, maybe because I'm wearing Chanel :P But it is a pretty good product that hasn't irritated me or made me break out. The only real complaint is that it doesn't come in a very wide range of colours which really sucks because my colour isn't perfect for my skin tone, but I think Chanel have addressed this with their range of 'perfection lumiere' foundations coming out soon (comes in a LOT of colours compared to this range!).
